A very nice option added to Little 5 recently. I was never a fan of many of the bars in this area, as of late. I normally only go if I am at a show at the Variety. This place was packed the Saturday evening we went, both before and after the show. An excellent selection of beer, and pretty good prices. I found the Duck Rabbit selections and prices to be the most appealing. With the size of the place, it is bursting at the seams, guess a place with decent beer and vibe was in great desire in the area. I did not get to sample the food, but spoke to the owner who said it was a must, as one would assume he'd say. Staff was surprisingly attentive and talkative considering the crowd. In the same vein, but hard to compare to Brick Store. A welcome addition to Atlanta, as we need more places like this.

Was in Atlanta last year and wanted to check out the top spots I'd heard about. Brick Store was as good as I heard and Wrecking Bar was the best surprise I'd had in years. Both more than covered the hype for beer and setting then knocked it out of the park with friendly helpful people.
But a year later I'm still thinking about the Porter. Man, what a special spot. The selection of taps and bottles was amazing, and made it way to hard to choose. This came with locals advising me left and right on their favorites that night. People behind the bar were about as good as I ever met. Advice and suggestions not only beers and glass ware, but even hints while tasting the brews. It was like a master class. What really stole the show is what is probably the ace up their sleeve that has them famous, and that's the Vintage list. You really need to get on the web and see it for yourself. But what wowed me was the vintages on tap...Struisse Pannepot 09, 10 and 11 on tap. Same night? Just another night? You have got to be kidding? Nope...just beer nirvana. Had all 3 and a few awesome tastings in between.
Only downside was a stayed too late, and found a parking ticket waiting for me.
So...highly highly recommended...but park thoughtfully.

Same sentiments as I shared on Yelp:
I came way out of my way to drink here on three different occasions during a trip to Atlanta; yeah, this place is official. O-ffi-cial.
Yeah, there's food and it looked delicious and I even ordered some tasty hush puppies that did a great job of soaking up beer, but I just want to talk about the beer. Yeah, they got whisky and other fine liquors, but I just want to talk about the beer.
This bar has one of the best craft beer selections I've seen from coast to coast. I'm generally going to love a place when it has a book that serves as a beer menu and I guess The Porter knew that. If I remember correctly, there were 36 taps to choose from, bottles on top of bottles to choose from that were organized by style, and oh yeah, a cellar list with some of the most sought after craft beer offerings known to man. Founder's Canadian Breakfast Stout from who knows how many years ago? That'll cost you about a buck fifty a bottle. That's $150, not $1.50. I won't lie, I was attempted to pull the trigger.
It turns out, you can actually do dinner in their cellar, surrounded by all the white whales of craft beer as long as you commit to buying so many bottles. That's on my bucket list.
But anyways, even poor folk like me found plenty to drink here and fall in love with good beer with each sip. My new favorite brewery, Westbrook Brewing, was all over the menu, both on tap and in bottles, as were their frequent collaborators, Evil Twin. I tried a great number of offerings from both and was either in love or obsessed with all.
They have a couple cask offerings, one of which just happened to be Allagash Curieux when I went in. Another score for me.
The Porter is the Harvard U. of beergeekery and I think I passed a remedial course. I'll have to return to complete my four year degree and enter the Beer Hall of Fame.
